No matter the cause or severity of your injury, we are committed to easing your pain and discomfort.
What Is Hand Therapy?
Hand therapy is a type of physical therapy focused on restoring function to the hand and minimizing pain after trauma. This practice involves exercises and other treatments designed to strengthen the hand and restore your range of motion. Our non-operative, non-invasive methods focus on prevention and recovery. Whether you recently had surgery or suffered an injury at work, Nova Health is here to provide hand therapy near Eugene or Roseburg, Oregon.
What Is a Type of Hand Injury That Requires Therapy?
Any hand injury can require physical therapy, including these common causes:
- Deformities from a traumatic event
- Broken bones
- Infections that lead to finger amputation
- Finger dislocations
- Carpal Tunnel
What Are Some of the Treatments?
The most common form of hand therapy involves exercises designed to strengthen and challenge your hand. You may start slowly by picking up something soft and progress to squeezing tennis balls to challenge your hand’s function.
Beyond exercise, we offer massages to manipulate the soft tissue in your hand and ultrasounds to ease muscle spasms. Our team can perform hot or cold therapy and help you adapt to the use of an artificial extremity. Regardless of your injury or condition, we can find the treatment your body best responds to and start from there.
